The Avengers earned their first W against Mount Pleasant, 19-8

The EGHS varsity football team celebrated homecoming tonight with a 19-8 win over Mount Pleasant. After three consecutive losses, the Avengers were looking for better results against the Division II-A Kilties and they got it. 

After a scoreless first quarter, EG scored a touchdown in the second quarter but missed the PAT. Mount Pleasant followed with a touchdown and 2-point conversion, pulling slightly ahead. Another 6 points put the Avengers ahead 12-8 at the half. EG’s defense and Keltie errors kept Mount Pleasant at bay for the second half, while offense was able to put another 7 points on the scoreboard in the fourth quarter for the win. The Avengers hit the road for their first away game at Burrillville on Saturday, Oct. 8, for a noon kickoff.
